On Saturday, August 17,  you can expect to see Minnesota’s best and brightest in attendance. The day will encompass highly engaging brand building activities, enlightening discussion panels and 25 industry experts including:

Mike Jackson, founder of The Premium Experience and event curator says “ F.A.M.E. is the catalyst that the Twin Cities has been waiting for! When it comes to entertainers, Minnesota is recognized for icons like Prince and Bob Dylan but we also have a huge community of musicians, models, filmmakers, actors and producers with incredible talent and very few outlets. With support of media, corporate partners and influencers within the MN ecosystem we will showcase what we have to offer the world creatively.”
